comment Replacing hardwired fire alarms with 10 year sealed alarms
We have 9ft ceilings on our main level, and I've never had trouble using even something like a dining chair to reach the recessed light cans... No offense meant but I'm not sure that I 100% understand your concern with ceiling height.

comment basement bathtub straddling a crater
A photo would help tremendously in understanding the scope of your issue. By "bulb", do you mean the entire bottom bulge of the tub? Or just the drain area? The wet drywall is likely another issue entirely, unless that's caused by stagnant water under the tub (and somehow the crater has something to do with it).

comment It is normal for glass-ceramic cooktop to be hot?
how hot? do you have a temperature number to work with? we use a ceramic cooktop, and almost the entire thing gets warm, specially when the larger burners are used. not hot as in enough to burn, but definitely warmer than ambient.

comment Is this the source of my hot tub leak, or just a symptom?
Hmmm... you're the kind of tenant I would probably love to have, if and when I end up renting out my property(ies). But really, it's his property, and he needs to be notified of everything that's not right. Note that he didn't buy YOU a new roof, he maintained HIS property. Please always remember this distinction.

Are you sure you didn't cause the cracking because of lifting the tub? And, if you're renting, shouldn't your landlord be responsible for this?

comment Why won't my air conditioner work after a power outtage?
looks like your thermostat is a goner. what sort of thermostat is it? if it's the newer digital style, try putting in a new set of batteries. or, these things are fairly cheap, so replace it and see if the display's still out.

comment is it OK to lay an engineered wood floor that is 27' long without putting a T-joint in the middle to avoid buckling?
are you sure the installer is going off of manufacturer recommendations and not his own experience? check with the floor manufacturer, they should be able to give you the actual numbers. my laminate floors' installation instructions asked for a joint at 13meters or 40feet. 18feet subjectively looks way too tiny a distance, and many open concept homes nowadays are much longer than that.
